Shanling Q1 Portable Hi-Fi Music Player: design

Aesthetically, this device is reminiscent of those that existed in the 1950s, where large buttons -all chrome- and matte colors with pastel tones were the predominant note. In addition, the lines are not straight, as the curves dominate everything with a zinc alloy and 7H tempered glass panel as a manufacturing material that allows the structure to be both strong and light at the same time. Sincerely, aesthetics is one of the great attractions of this music player.
